Wolves Take Down Falcons in Montevallo

Montevallo, AL - The 2011-12 women's basketball season is officially underway and the UWG squad started things off on solid footing Tuesday night, taking down the Montevallo Falcons 62-57 in the season opener.

Senior Krystal Delph scored 15 points in the first half and a game-high 19 points to lead the Wolves (1-0) to the season-opening victory. The captain also came up big down the stretch with a pair of steals in the final minutes to salt the game away for West Georgia.

"It was really big for us to start off the season strong and we really feel like we started this off the way we wanted to," said Delph. "A huge key for us was that our freshmen stepped up well for us and we are going to need that all season to be successful."

Three players who were either new to the Wolves or didn't play much a season ago saw time in the opener, with Angela Davis, Shakilya McLeon and Kanesha Looper# combining for 14 points. McLeon stepped up in the final moments, drawing a foul while hitting a layup and making the subsequent free throw to put the Wolves up for good with 2:10 left in the contest.

Things started off slowly for the Wolves, as Montevallo used an early 12-1 run to take a 12-3 lead in the first five minutes of the contest. Montevallo kept the lead for much of the first half and led by as many as nine with 5:30 left in the period.
